Beef Tips

5:00 AM

Hello! My older sister (over at Standpipe & Sprinkles) was gracious enough to send me a temporary camera. Obviously that means I'm finally back on blogging schedule. So sorry that I went missing for a little while.

The good news is a lieutenant from our local police department drove over today to let us know that they caught the person who was stealing in our area! Now we just need prayers that our camera can be recovered.

This recipe is super easy, incredibly delicious... and did I mention easy? I am IN LOVE with my crock pot. Seriously. Especially when the hubs isn't around to help, it makes it so much easier to throw ingredients in the crock pot and let it work the magic so I have an easy-to-retrieve-dinner that won't create super fuss and panic in our house at "that time of day".


- 1 lb stew beef
- 1/2 C cream of mushroom soup
- 1/2 C Sprite zero
- 1/2 onion, quartered
- 1 package of dry onion soup (I used Lipton)
- 1/2 tsp black pepper


- Put everything in your crockpot.
(Doesn't THAT look appetizing?)

- Cook on low for six hours, or high for about 3 to 4. Check on it half way through to give it a good stir and make sure nothing's overcooking or anything like that.

- Serve warm with some yummy sides!

Yep... that's it. What did I tell you? Super easy.

My husband said he imagined it was something like Julia Child would make (this is his way of paying me a compliment that he thinks I'll receive extraordinarily well... and it works). He did request that next time he thinks it would taste extra delicious served over mashed potatoes or something. I'm not sure that's Julia Child's style... but we'll go with it.
